Mini Shawl – A truly mini one!
This mini shawl was born from my desire to participate in the contest managed by Tricoteiras.com in partnership with Aslan. The challenge was to create a piece with just one ball of Bariloche yarn from Aslan Trends (100g approx 160m, 85% woll/15% polyamide) for needles of 5 to 7mm.
I have a crush on shawls – I confess! – and the structure of a triangular piece was my starting point! As I was knitting and the piece taking form of a shawl , I started to search for lace stitches that goes well with the multicolor yarn. The Mini Shawl is an easy pattern with details at the edge in simple lace stitch.
I like to think that this project is a good option for those who want to take the first steps in knitting lace and perhaps fall in love with it! And the ones that already familiar with lace stitches can rest from complex graphics!
Being made with only one skein of Bariloche yarn, this mini shawl is really small, LOL! It must be very stretched when blocked! To enhance the border motif, it also demands special attention when blocked as you can see in the picture below. The pins are attached following the curves created by the “Flo” motif.
- Yarn: Aslan Trends Bariloche color 1319 (100gr aprox 175 yd ; 85% Merino Wool/15% Polyamide) – 1 ball
- Needles: US7/4.5mm straight or 32” circular needles, US7/4.5mm or size to obtain gauge
- Gauge: 12sts = 4”/10cm in St st
- Final measurements after blocking: aprox 36¨(longer side) and 21″ (smaller sides)
